In late April, Westpac hiked four and five year fixed package rates for owner occupiers, and this morning it made similar increases across loans with shorter terms:

  • Premier Advantage Fixed Options P&I 2 Years: Up 10 basis points to 1.89% p.a. (3.38% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • Premier Advantage Fixed Options P&I 3 Years: Up 10 basis points to 1.98% p.a. (3.30% p.a. comparison rate*)

These comparison rates apply specifically to borrowers with at least a 30% deposit (70% LVR).

Equivalent loan products with 95% LVR were also increased by 10 basis points, as were non-packaged products.

Important Information and Comparison Rate Warning

Base criteria of: a $400,000 loan amount, variable, fixed, principal and interest (P&I) home loans with an LVR (loan-to-value) ratio of at least 80%. However, the ‘Compare Home Loans’ table allows for calculations to be made on variables as selected and input by the user. Some products will be marked as promoted, featured or sponsored and may appear prominently in the tables regardless of their attributes. All products will list the LVR with the product and rate which are clearly published on the product provider’s website. Monthly repayments, once the base criteria are altered by the user, will be based on the selected products’ advertised rates and determined by the loan amount, repayment type, loan term and LVR as input by the user/you. *The Comparison rate is based on a $150,000 loan over 25 years. Warning: this comparison rate is true only for this example and may not include all fees and charges. Different terms, fees or other loan amounts might result in a different comparison rate. Rates correct as of . View disclaimer.

Westpac's subsidiaries Bank of Melbourne, St. George, and BankSA increased rates on similar home loans by 10 basis points this morning, however advertised and comparison rates, and LVRs may differ slightly.

These hikes to fixed loan products are consistent with other lenders that have done so lately, which is partly due to the Reserve Bank's Term Funding Facility winding down at the end of the month.

Banks that have increased rates lately include CommBankNAB, Citi, and UBank, just to name a few.
